Autism Bucks aims to develop a range of varied and accessible awareness and training resources, created and delivered by autistic people and/or parent/carers of autistic people. Programmes will be available in a variety of formats and designed to reach different audiences.
Our Mission: For the first project we worked with our members and volunteers to develop the Autism Bucks Awareness Project; delivering presentations on a range of topics providing new awareness about autism. This current programme is delivered virtually and available to watch here or on our YouTube channel.
The programme format is simple; short sessions on a given topic or theme, presented by experts by experience, each followed by a short Q&A with the presenter
